Fishing and Shellfishing

With the Pacific Ocean on the west, the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the north and Hood Canal on the east, the fishing possibilities are endless. Some of the best river fishing in the world can be found on the Elwha, Bogachiel, Hoh and Sol Duc Rivers. Good lake fishing can be had at Lake Leland, Lake Sutherland, Lake Crescent, Lake Pleasant, and Lake Ozette. Clallam Bay and Sekiu have been a mecca for decades for ocean fishing, as are La Push on the Pacific Ocean and Neah Bay at the Peninsula's northwestern tip. Many charters sail out of these bays and harbors. Hood Canal, especially near Quilcene and Brinnon, is famous for its shellfish and the annual Brinnon ShrimpFest. Dungeness Harbor is the home of the prized Dungeness crab, celebrated annually at the Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival in October.
